Starc out; Faulkner back in Australia squad

Melbourne: Australia on Friday recalled the pace duo of James Faulkner and Nathan Coulter-Nile for the five-match ODI series against India next month but Mitchell Starc was left out owing to a foot injury. Faulkner, who was man of the match in the 2015 World Cup final, was omitted from Australia's Champions Trophy squad. The 27-year-old has played 67 ODIs, grabbing 95 wickets.

India and Australia are set to play five ODIs and three Twenty20s between September 17 and October 13. "Pacemen James Faulkner and Nathan Coulter-Nile have been recalled to Australia's ODI squad for their tour of India in September and October, as have all-rounders Ashton Agar and Hilton Cartwright," Cricket Australia said in a statement.
